At the THE COTTAGE of Shreveport, Louisiana, we take pride in our work and strive to give our clients the most innovative design with the highest quality materials available. We specialize in truly custom spaces, designed to make your vision a reality. We craft each environment using our wealth of design experience, along with a fresh and creative eye. Though no two designs are identical, our home designs are bound by a common theme. THE COTTAGE brings every element of each project together – from cabinetry and appliances to windows and doors as well as tile and stone, Phantom Screens and Solatube – together in a cohesive way. The comfort of the process will only be out shined by the joy brought by a truly personalized space just for you! THE COTTAGE is owned by Terry & Mary Ann Elston and was started as the Kitchen & Bath Cottage n 2001. Terry’s 40+ years of construction experience joins his reputation for detailed design and craftsmanship, as well as integrity in business practices. Those principles are echoed in the THE COTTAGE’s approach, combined with the benefit of sound construction and remodeling expertise at hand. Mary Ann has a B.S. in Accounting from LSU and is also a professional photographer. Terry & Mary Ann have seven children: his (Andrew & David), mine (Christopher, Brennan & Connor) and ours (Catherine & Collin).
